International Focus

We have studied and worked abroad and, most importantly, have accrued years of expertise in the legal assistance of clients in their Italian operations, as well as in their cross-border transactions.

Our longstanding experience in assisting privately held and public corporations based, among other countries, in the U.S., Japan, P.R.C., Philippines, Indonesia, Chile, Australia, Israel and throughout the European Union has provided us with the insightful ability to guide our clients in their special projects and in their day-to-day business.

Tradition

Italy Legal Focus is the brand name of a team of professionals who have worked together for over 20 years.

The roots of the firm trace back to three decades ago, when Gabriele Bernascone established the Italian office of Graham & James LLP in 1981, a U.S. firm founded in 1934 that combined with Squire Sanders & Dempsey LLP in 2000.

 

Efficiency

We take pride in providing high quality legal services in the most efficient and timely fashion. We combine our extensive knowledge of the law with a strong sensitivity to our clients’ business targets.

We typically maintain longstanding relationships with our clients: we build efficient and cordial working relationships with local and international personnel and work with them as one team.

Independence

Italy Legal Focus is an Italian independent law firm.

We have chosen to work with other firms and networks without any exclusive relationship. On the other hand, our dedication to client assistance is never overshadowed by conflicts of interest.

Thanks to this approach we have developed an impressive network of relationships with professionals in Italy and abroad and are able to suggest the “right” professional in a number of jurisdictions and in a variety of specific areas of practices.

 

Innovation

We have developed specific skills in assisting companies engaged in innovative projects, such as life sciences and biotech, renewable energies, new financial services and software.

Innovative industries require forward looking legal assistance: we offer a creative and proactive approach to legal issues and we deliver practical commercial solutions.

Non Profit Initiative

Attorneys with Italy Legal Focus have founded and lead the biotech think tank SISB, Società Italiana per lo Studio delle Biotecnologie.
